[Blogged]: Lean on me. #autism

"Is she too heavy for you, Mom?" I said, worried that my 11-year-old's awkward hug may be too physically taxing my mother.

"It's ok, it's ok, let Faith lean on me," Mom laughed. "I can still take it. I'll move her away if I cannot take her weight." Mom told me the other day, Faith leaned over and rested on her shoulder while she was driving. "Aiyoh, she was sweet but I had to make her sit back on her seat," Mom laughed. No matter what your triumphs or failures in 2012, what your ups or downs, what your tears or laughter, there is much to be thankful for. May your 2013 be filled with hugs and love from your special loved ones.
